Atlanta Braves DFS Notes

Freddie Freeman went 3-for-4 with a homer in a win over the Cardinals on Tuesday. Freeman's homer is the 24th of the season. The 2020 MVP has also driven in 60 runs and is now slashing .294/.396/.511 on the season. Those aren't the same numbers he put up in the truncated season, but they're getting closer to that level. Freeman is simply one of the best hitters in the sport.

St. Louis Cardinals DFS Notes

Tyler O'Neill went 3-for-3 with a run scored on Tuesday in a loss to the Braves. O'Neill also drew a walk. The outfielder came around to score an inconsequential run in the ninth inning of a game the Cardinals lost 6-1. O'Neill is having his best season of his career, and the four-reach game brings his season slash to .271/.331/.509 with 17 homers and 40 RBI.
